Could we BE more active in the Vancouver blogging community? If we were I’d have to start drinking a lot more coffee, not sleeping at all and get bionic hands since all this typing (at work and home) is killin’ me.

John was invited to podcast a meetup, which we attended last night. Rachael made the request for Vandigicam, a Flickr group full of interesting people from Vancouver who love to take pictures. She’s an admin and also one of my Metroblogging Vancouver counterparts.

The event was phenomenal. We met near the inukshuk in English Bay, put names into a hat, paired off and snapped pics. It was a ‘portrait throwdown’. John captured the evening via audio while everyone else was snapping pics on all kinds of cams. After about an hour the ‘party’ moved to a restaurant so John and I parted ways with our new group. I’ll be posting the link to the podcast audio once it’s published (within the next few days).

The turnout was the most successful of any meetup of any kind we’ve been to, about 40 people. Such an interesting mix, friendly, creative and SO talented. It was my first time behind a camera in that fashion and definitely being in front of it in that way. We’re looking forward to being more active with the group. The pics are all up on Flickr (of course) under the group and also the tag: vandigicam_ptd3. ….see if you can spot me :p

I also just found the live journal blog of one of my portrait throwdown partners. Cool! 🙂

EDIT: I have to include this pic (by JudyB) it captures the evening perfectly ~ haha!

    yeah, I found you. Pretty girl! I also found a handful of shots of John with his microphone & headphones.

    But I must say, your picture was really beautiful. Very striking… God, it sounds like I have a crush on you. 😐

    I just used John’s old Canon Powershot and also took some pics with my phone. There were also poloroids there, fun stuff.

    Miss me? You live 3 blocks away from me and we’re going to walk to work together. If anything, we’re going to get tired of each other. 😛

    I’m really glad you and John came out yesterday AND that you enjoyed it enough to come again. I must warn you though, getting involved with Vandigicam can give you a photography addiction.

    I’m really looking forward to hearing the podcast.

    […] lose you. It takes an event like that to make me realize how valuable you are to me. From your groups like Vandigicam that first got John and I out of the house in 2006 to meetup with other fine folks in this city, to your sets and collections that I can […]
